Green Tip Tuesday
Yello bloggers & readers. Here is a quick tip for today on this rainy morning (here in Texas). This weekend my beagle, Dezi, broke her water bowl. It was a lovely ceramic bowl that I got for free off of my local Freecycle. I defiantly did not want to go out and buy a new one. So I stopped in my tracks and tried to think of something I already had that I can use. My dog is an inside and outside dog, so sometimes I find myself carrying her dog bowl full of water outside and often spill it all over my shoes!
Then it clicked! I have extra wipes boxes that I had used right after baby #2 was born (baby shower presents). I knew exactly where they were. So I ran to go get them from the garage, gave them a quick wash and then filled it up with water, closed the lid, and then took it outside.... WITH NO SPILLS! ((There were some drips, but not like before))
And since I had three. I just left one outside.... covered the lid so it wouldn't get full of leaves and dirt... and I put the other two inside where she usually eats (I want to see how she reacts) and filled one with water and the other with food. I closed the lids while she was out and it smelled less like dog food when I past by. GENIUS!
So that's my tip. If you are doing some traveling or like me who has an active dog you can hold your pets food and water in a handy dandy wipes box and when you're on the move, just close it up. I'm sure to make more of a seal you can add maybe some tape around the edges. You can also cover it with a piece of fabric to make it pretty.
